Volunteers to sow wildflowers at Keighley community centre
1:00pm Wednesday 6th March 2013 in News
Flower power will grow even stronger this spring at the Sue Belcher Community Centre in Bracken Bank.
Volunteers planted flowers outside the centre last year as part of efforts to make the facility more attractive.
Now they plan to turn the slope in front of the building into a mini wildflower meadow.
Residents will be enlisted to help dig up the grass and plant flowers during a community day on Sunday, April 21.
Planned activities include seed scattering, a barbecue, live entertainment and lambs taken along by a local farmer.
The event will be entitled The Mudslinging Returns to echo last year’s successful Mudsling when residents had a fun gardening day.
The Sue Belcher Centre is run by Bracken Bank and District Community Association.
Association chairman Alec Brown said that before the April event the slope leading up to the centre would be treated with weedkiller.
He said: “We’ll be putting wildflower seeds in. We’ll also be replanting another side of the building with nicer plants.”
